Each year, Prospects works with thousands of young people to help them transition into adulthood with the skills, knowledge and experience they need for the future.
Targeted support for young people
We work with many local authorities to provide targeted support to young people most in need, particularly those not in education, employment or training (NEET).
This includes our work in partnership with Gloucestershire County Council, to provide the youth support service. The team works with approximately 6,000 vulnerable young people. The service targets specific groups of young people who are at risk of not making a successful transition into adulthood. The multi-disciplinary team comprises youth workers, family support, health and careers specialists working with police and probation officers, to deliver a number of statutory services. Acting as an integrated team, they intervene early to prevent issues escalating. Having these specialists within a single service means cases are managed far more effectively and there is access to a wide pool of expertise. More than 90% of young people supported by the team say it has made a difference to their lives.
We provide similar services for many other authorities including in London, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Coventry and Warwickshire, Wolverhampton, Bradford, Wakefield and services for care leavers in Calderdale.
We also provide care, support and education programmes to looked after children through Homes2Inspire.
